Had a little bit of a running session today, photos will be loaded later/tomorrow.
I put my Bachmann WD back together today, 90733 is such an impressive looking loco! I will be getting a new chassis for it as the whole damn thing shorts. Think its the wheels as it doesnt have a motor anymore, so it must be the wheels.
Anyway, photos soon.
Kenny.

Are you hoping it to be a dummy? Then perhaps, check that the wheels are insulated (Piece of plastic in the axle, so it's not solid metal) Or that the pickups still don't rub on the wheels. :)

Hope that helps.

It is staying as a static exhibit but a brand new working chassis will be sourced when one day.

i would love the coaches in the last pic, i'd like 3 henriettas, i'd make up a two brake coach, two normal coach train of emilys coaches and get all the different named rocket coaches if i could afford to, and of course i would love all those terriers :P

When will the next terrierfest be held? :mrgreen:

Well no photos of the latest arrivals (Donald and Douglas, 103 Flying Scotsman in Black) yet but now i have something amazing to photograph, the Dapol/Kernow Model Centre LSWR 2-4-0WTBeattie Well Tank 30585!! :D It arrived on Thursday but as I haven't been at home, it hasn't been run yet, nor has it been in good enough light to photograph. So when i get home tomorrow evening i will be going straight up to the loft to run it in! Oh and photograph it! :D
